Today, it is a fascinating mixture of Pre-Colombian structures, Colonial buildings and contemporary mestizo culture. Esp. at Inti Raymi Cuzco comes to life with thousands of Peruvians celebrating winter solstice and the sungod following Pre-Colombian traditions while Christian believes have shaped the festival 'Virgin del Carmen' in nearby Paucartambo.
The face of the city, too, is determined by a mix of cultures: Incan ruins like Sacsayhuamán or Qoricancha (Temple of the Sun) are major highlights.
